Investing In American Gold Eagle Coins

Investing in the American eagle gold coin is a good way to hedge against a declining dollar. These coins can provide the stability, liquidity and diversity you need in these financially troubling times. For investors wanting to add precious metals to their portfolio these coins are a great start.

Since the value often moves independently of stocks and bonds,. the coins consistently hold their value, no matter how volatile the financial situation is.

These coins were first authorized for creation by Congress in 1985 and the first minting started in 1986.with four different sizes, 1 oz., 1/2 oz., 1/4 oz., and 1/10 oz. However it is better to buy the 1 oz coins due to the smaller coins carrying a higher premiums above spot prices.

Only gold bullion mined in the United States can be used in these coins. These are America’s only official investment grade gold bullion whose weight, purity, and content are guaranteed by the US Government and they are accepted all over the world in major investment markets.

Because they are the number one gold bullion coins in the world, you can easily buy them. They are also easily converted into cash at most coin and precious metal dealers because of their government backing and their recognition worldwide.

The price of the American Eagle Gold coin is determined by the market price of gold at the time of sale or purchase. You don't purchase Bullion coins from the mint, you purchase them from an authorized dealer, who sells them at a price above the price of gold.

You can legally purchase gold bullion through an IRA account, but you are going to have to taxes on it if you plan on holding it as an asset. You would be better off placing the coins in a safety deposit box. Paul Mladjenovic, author of "Precious Metals Investing For Dummies", says you should hold them at least a minimum of three years. The coins should also be insured for their full value.

If you're looking for a good safe invest that can withstand the threat of inflation the American Eagle Gold coin is a good bet. And that says it all.

Guest post written by my buddy Fidel Hernandez

One of my co-workers, Mary, bought a new home in a different area of town from where she had lived for over 30 years. She discovered that she had the option of several television viewing providers and was interested in DIRECTV vs DISH. Both are satellite so it was just a matter of the viewing options offered to her. She had never had a choice before. The area where she moved from only had one viewing capability. Options are great, she decided.

She also had options for her power and gas and was able to combine some city services into one bill. Mary loves her new home and she was really impressed with how easy it was to get into it. Of course, it took her weeks to pack before the movers came. She had thirty years of memories, and junk, stored in her attic and basement. But with the downsize, which is what she did now that the kids were out of the house, she had to purge and throw out and store some things differently. Purging junk like that is a great feeling!

Thinking About Self Publishing On Kindle

For the last few weeks now I have been thinking about self-publishing on Kindle. I have seen and read a lot about it lately and I think it’s a good way of making some passive income. A bunch of people are doing it and publishing all kinds of things. You can even publish your blog for Kindle.

I am always looking for ways to make passive recurring income and this looks like a good way to it. There are some things one needs know about kindle publishing and there are some guides that I found that can be big help. If you are also thinking about publishing on Kindle here are the links to those guides.

Cat Sitting

Contributed by Milford Woods

My next door neighbor asked me to take care of her daughter’s cat while my neighbor went out of town. Obviously she does not know how much I cannot stand cats. She also has a dog, but she must have sent him off somewhere else. So I reluctantly said okay. Then I realized that the cat I would be taking care of does not even live with my neighbor because her daughter is married and has a house of her own. So she left me written instructions on how to get into her house.

First I had to unlock the door, and then go straight to the house alarm and put in the code to stop the alarm from going off. No pressure there! Then I just had to fill the food and water bowls set the alarm and leave. The first day went fine. The second day was a little different. I went in the kitchen to fill the bowls and noticed there were about a million ants swarming all through the food bowl and all over the kitchen floor.

This totally grossed me out. So I went outside and tossed all the food left in the bowl up into the woods. Then I had to find some bug spray to spray down all the ants. I filled the bowl with food and left it on the kitchen table. I figured the cat probably jumped up there all the time anyway. Thank goodness that was my last day to do in there. I can’t stand cats or ants.

I Love The Walking Dead

I love the TV show “The Walking Dead”. When I first heard about the show I wondered how good a show about zombies could be, after all zombies have been done to death (no pun intended). Well, from the very first show I could see where they were going and I liked what they were doing and it just kept getting better.

The show is based off of a graphic novel (comic book). I never read the graphic novel, but I would like to see it to see how it compares to the show. What makes the show so good is that fact that’s about more the people killing and trying to avoid zombies, it gets into the characters of the people themselves.

I don’t watch AMC much, but I am finding that they have some very good shows and “The Walking Dead” is one of them. And that says it all.

Will 12/21/2010 Be The End

The Mayan calendar ends at 12/21/2012 and there has been speculation that, that will be the day the world ends. One of the speculations is that the earth will stop rotating because of a solar flair from the sun that will super heat the earth’s core causing the earth crust to thin and so on and so on.

What is interesting to me is the weather we have had this year. We actually didn’t have a winter. It seems like the seasons may be going off and if that is the case maybe that’s why the Mayan calendar ends at 12/21/2012 because there will be a shift of the seasons.

Whatever the theory is we will know for sure 12/21/2012. And that says it all.

Happy Birthday To Me

Today is my Birthday and I'm glad I made it through another. I'm 59 today, I'm in good health and above all I look good. A lot of folks didn't make this far and I could have been one of them so I count myself lucky.

I haven't accomplished everything that I wanted to, but I'm still working on it. However I have accomplished a lot of things and that is something. I am happy for the things I accomplished and won't be sad about what I haven't, I'll just keep on pushing.

So I just want to take this time to say Happy Birthday to me and may I have many more. And That says it all.

Some Financial Wisdom

It amazes me how stupid people can be with their finances. People seem to have a buy what I want regardless of my debt attitude.  I know people that cry about how deep they are in a hole and yet they keep spending my on things they don't need.

Here is a bit of financial wisdom folks. You don't need the internet or a bunch of apps on your cell phone. Texting cost you money.

Eating out cost you more then spending that some amount of money for groceries that will last you week rather then one day and one meal.

Charging things to your credit card gets you deeper in debt. You can't afford it, don't charge it.

Designer clothes cost more then non-designer clothes, but guess what? They do the same thing, cover you up and you can get clothes that look as good or better then the designer clothes.

These are things you don't need. Rule of thumb, if you're in debt and you can't afford it, don't spend money on it. Instead spend your money on getting out of debt and stop whining. That says it all.

Find Affiliate Marketing Success With Affiliate Cash Snipers

I received several e-mails about a software called Affiliate Cash Snipers so I decided to look into it. The claim for this software is that it will help you make more money with the amazon affiliate program. Okay, I'm an amazon affiliate and I would love to make more money so show me how it's done.

Well, how it's done is the software lets you create interactive widgets that visitors to your website choose certain attributes of products that you are selling.

Say for instance you are selling digital cameras. You can setup a widget that will let your visitor choose the make, the model, the color and even the price. That's really powerful in letting the visitor get exactly what they want.

When they click to see the item to go to Amazon with your affiliate ID embedded and if they buy you get the commission and since they are looking at exactly what they wanted chance are high that they will buy.

I think this can help grow your amazon affiliate commission and I plan to buy it. How about you. And that says it all.

Thanks to Lemuel Craft

I am originally from Chicago. I went to undergrad at Vanderbilt and decided to stay in Nashville for law school because I loved it so much. I practiced law for the last ten years in New York City. Recently, a job opportunity became available in Chicago. It sort of fell in my lap and I felt like it was meant to be. I am looking forward to being near my family again.

While, I would travel back to see them about every two months, I just can’t wait to see my parents every Sunday for lunch after church. When I got an offer and signed the contract, I immediately headed to Chicago to search for a place. I found a great home in a building that is pretty close to my parent’s brownstone. It was a great price and I immediately jumped at the opportunity to purchase it.

It is a place that I can see myself living for a long time. I think that it is going to be a great place. I have hired a decorator to help me pick some curtains and make some window treatments. My mom is meeting illinois home security there before the big move so that I can get an alarm system installed. Other than that, I am ready to move!

Why I Love Sci Fi Movies

I am a huge fan of sci-fi movies I just can get enough of them. I was asked the other day why I love sci-fi movies so much and my answer was because they are a total escape.

Movies are supposed to be an escape from everyday life where you can go to a fantasy world and get away from the humdrum of your own life. Well science fiction movies do that in spades.

Mysteries, suspense and action movies take you from your real life, but they are still within the real world. I like to be taken totally away. Science fiction takes you to different worlds, different times and different possibilities. It is a total and absolute escape and I love it.

It makes you wonder about what can be and what will be. It totally sparks the imagination. For me there is nothing better. And that says it all.

Paleo Cooking For the Paleo Diet

I recently did some research for this Squidoo lens I did for a Paleo Diet cookbook. I the process of doing my research I found out a lot about the diet and how good for you Paleo cooking is. For those of you that are as clueless as I was about this diet before doing the research this diet basically goes back to paleolithic era.

In the days of the caveman our ancestors ate natural foods provided by Mother Nature. Now that doesn't mean just fruits and vegetables, it also included some meats, fish, nuts and seeds. These foods not only allowed our ancestors to maintain a natural weight, they also gave them the energy they needed to do their hunting and gathering as well as kept them healthy.

Paleo cooking allows use now to prepare those foods in a healthy and tasty manner that we are accustom to.

The one cookbook that I found that offers lots of recipes to use for every meal is the "Paleo Recipe Book". It has over 370 recipes so your meals will never get boring.

If you're thinking about trying this diet or are already on it you must give this recipe a try. And that says it all.
